Fast on the heels of our fantasticly reformulated Hops Infusion, our brewers have picked up the gauntlet and brewed a Double IPA using exclusively Simcoe(R) Hops! This west coast Hops was created in 2000 by Select Botanicals, Inc. and carries a fantastic flavor profile abounding with citrusy-grapefruit, piney, resiny notes that pushes this Double IPA over the top. 9.0% ABV in the brew gives it a nice malt foundation as well. Draft and bottles, 12 oz. in PA, 22 oz. out of state (as we have no 6-packs),

UPDATED: MAY 17, 2007 MMMMMMM! This is a real treat. Found a 22 oz. in Jersey after cursing myself for not picking up a case when I had the chance. What an IPA! Wonderfully sweet-piney aroma. great hoppy taste up front, full and chewy, with a wonderful finish. Using simcoe as a solo-hop is a great move. My only hope is that they start making this one more often!

22oz Bottle. Pours amber and hazy with big creamy white head. Aroma is pine, citrus, and hops. This is nicely smooth with a good amount of citrus. A little bready and malty. Good tasty hop kick. Maybe Im getting jaded by all the great double IPAs out there, but I dont see anything remarkable here. Its a damn good beer, but I feel like Ive had it before. The Yulesmith is still #1

HOPS!! Like grapefruit and weed. I dont totally love the flavor, but you cant argue that it is not powerful.

Terminus (3626) - St. Louis, Missouri, USA - JUL 24, 2006
bottle-deep orange with a foamy off-white head. nose is big citric hops-lots of light floral citrus. some fussel notes in there as well-passionfruit, mangos. flavors are very soft in the bitterness category-mostly a citric-based IIPA with some candy-like malt profile. I dunno-the alcohol is there but not as offensive as other weyerbacher offerings. light finish of lingering passionfruit. lots of residual sweetness and not enough dryness. i dunno-simcoe hops seem weak for IIPAs in bittering. I like the hop flavor, but there needs to be other hops added to bitter and dry things out.

3fourths (9280) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - JUL 23, 2006
Bottle. Nose is starchy, dry, arid, spicy hops. Flavor is somewhat caustic, coarse, fruity, sticky, thick, sweet and fuesal (just slightly). Rich, fizzy, pretty good overall. Almost has some saison qualities.

A nice double. The citrusy simcoe hops hit you in the nose and the taste right away. The 9% is masked very well, and the mouthfeel is very nice. Perhaps a bit more malt would help, but it is really close to having that perfect balance.

RBSG06: A real eye opener. Really hoppy. Everything you expect when you hear IIPA. Which is why Im not impressed. No real balance and I don;t like hops that much.

omhper (24094) - Tyres, SWEDEN - JUL 18, 2006
[Bottled at Olivert Twist, Stockholm] Hazy reddish brown, lasting creamy head. Powerful aroma of sweaty grapefruits and lingonberry. Fairly sweet with lots of malt and reasonably soft mouthfeel. Though hop dominated alcohol plays a significant part - lingonberries are strikingly evident. Very bitter finish with plenty of salty licorice and tar. A good one.

FROTHINGSLOSH (7189) - GREENSBURG, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 17, 2006
I was looking forward to trying this one given the recent hype about it. Sampled from a 12 oz brown bottle this beer poured a chestnut color with a large tan head. The aroma is fruity and rather peppery hops. The flavor is strong fruity , floral and peppery hops. There is an earthy undertone. There is an off flavor to the hops that is faintly unpleasant. The malt presence is a bit lacking and the hops totally overwhelm
